FDU’s Silberman College of Business featured in the Princeton Review’s “Best 295 Business Schools: 2014 Edition”

Madison, N.J. (October 10, 2013) – Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Silberman College of Business is one of the nation's most outstanding business schools, according to the education services company, The Princeton Review. The Princeton Review features the school in the new 2014 edition of its book, “The Best 295 Business Schools” (Random House / Princeton Review, October 8, 2013, $22.99).

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, “We recommend FDU’s Silberman College of Business as one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn a business school degree. We chose the schools we profile in this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicit and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools who rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question student survey for the book.” The Princeton Review's survey asks business school students about their school's academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans.

“Silberman College of Business is delighted to once again be named to The Princeton Review’s Annual Business School Rankings,” said James Almeida, interim dean of FDU's Silberman College of Business.  This recognition is a testament to the outstanding quality of our student body, as well as to our strong cadre of highly qualified faculty and an extremely supporting staff as they collaborate to foster an exceptional educational experience for our students. We take great pride in this prestigious recognition and remain committed to prepare our students for success in a business environment that is extremely dynamic, profoundly complex, and ever more global.” 

“The Best 295 Business Schools: 2014 Edition" has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions. In the profile on FDU’s Silberman College of Business, the Princeton Review editors describe the school’s faculty as “a mix of global businessmen and local success stories.” The Princeton Review quotes from students attending FDU’s Silberman College of Business who were surveyed for the book. Among the student comments, “The school tries to keep each class small” and “we are getting a strong global business education.” 

The Princeton Review does not rank the business schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 295, or name one business school best overall. Instead, the book has 11 ranking lists of the top 10 business schools in various categories. Ten lists are based entirely or partly on The Princeton Review's surveys of 20,300 students attending the 295 business schools profiled in the book. Conducted during the 2012-13, 2011-12, and 2010-11 academic years, the student surveys were completed online. Some lists, such as the "Best Career Prospects" list, use both student survey and institutional data. One list, “Toughest to Get Into,” is based solely on institutional data. The ranking lists in the book are posted at http://www.princetonreview.com/business-school-rankings.aspx

The Silberman College of Business is accredited by AACSB International —The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the premier business accreditation body. The College boasts more than 43,000 alumni, and for more than 50 years, graduates of the Silberman College have gone on to key management positions in business throughout the United States and the world.

"The Best 295 Business Schools” is one of more than 150 Princeton Review books published by Random House. The line includes "The Best 169 Law Schools"  -- also published in October 2013 and also featuring 11 ranking lists primarily based on surveys of students attending the schools in the book. Other Princeton Review books include "The Best 167 Medical Schools," plus guides to graduate school admission exams and application essays. The Princeton Review is also known for its guides to colleges and to standardized tests, its classroom and online test-prep courses, tutoring, and other education services. Headquartered in Framingham, MA, The Princeton Review is not affiliated with Princeton University, and it is not a magazine.
